Setting up contractor - Can you do it without asking them to fill in info?


We have two contractors that we need to report. We have their information on hand. I'd prefer not to ask them to set up their own account and enter their info. Is there a way to bypass this (screenshot of message attached)?

Hey @cdmiller612


Welcome to the QuickBooks community! 


I understand your preference to set up their accounts yourself. You can set up your contractors the old way before the Workers module was added.


If you have all of your contractors; information, here's another way to set up and file 1099s: How to Prepare and Send 1099-MISCs Forms to Independent Contractors Using QuickBooks Online (Plus)
